    well, we knew he fell out of a chopper but not all the details. we knew he held fire the first trip because of the kids around the shooter.

    all the marines i've talked to, both current & former, said he should have blown up the shooter & the future terrorists. i guess he just wasn't able to make himself do that.

    Trying to use fact & logic to sway the opinion of someone with an agenda is a complete waste of time & energy.

      You have my deepest condolences, TB. I hope that you are able to get some closure from the information contained in the final report.

(I have the credentials to make that statement) I respect the fact the military after the investigation re-wrote the manual.
      I was wondering about that, RC. I believe that to be a true expectation of maritime captains and assumed that it was a "code of honor" for the captains of all types of vessels. During my duties as First Mate on the touring vessel, I worked with three different captains. There was one under whom I refused to work because he would ask the crew to do things which I considered to be dangerous and that he would not do himself. I think a good captain has himself been in his crews' shoes before and believe that he or she intentionally puts himself in their shoes mentally when making decisions....
      There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Bersa Chat Zone!
